Last year at this time, my husband Colin, my brother David, and I were gearing up to take a teacher tour of India. Believe it or not, I still have hundreds of photos from that trip which remain to be put into articles… so here’s the next batch! These images are of the most beautiful doorways I’ve ever seen, spotted at the City Palace in Jaipur, India.
Lap up the colorful details of each of these distinct archways, and decide: If you had an infinite budget, which of these doorways would YOU pick to purchase for your place of residence?
It’s funny to look at these photos from a year ago and think how different things are now in our lives, what with our sweet new baby’s arrival!
But it’s all worked out deliciously.
Since we were able to squeeze in the epic India trip before our baby emerged, now we don’t feel hemmed in by the fact that we can’t really roam the world (or sometimes even leave the house) for a little while due to the tyrannical diaper and feeding demands of our little lord.
So the moral is this: Now may not be the “perfect” time to take a big trip, but do it sooner rather than later, because you never know what might be coming next!
